eyes  ive been suffering from depression for 3 years now and it all seemed to start about a time i had a mild stroke.
days are really hard at times and my emotions seem to spiral from calm to 'god this is the end of the world for me'
i have 4 lovley childrem and a very supportive husband ,i can understand why this has happend to me .im 30 years old .I am hopeing that i can beat this horrible disease that has taken my old happy self ,ive also lost touch with my brother who 2 years ago had a fight for cancer,he seemed to be ok at first then he got sad {just like us}now me and the rest of my family are trying to find him and also hes wife and 2 lovley kids,hes 36 and hope i can find him soon .
Anyway i will carry on fighting this illness and hope to find a closure soon.
thanks mandy

smurf  Hang in there, Mandy. Things will fall into place. Read some of the back-posts and perhaps you will see how we cope. Good luck!
There is no such word as can't. Can't simply means wouln't. Grab as much as life as you can. Future is a long way away for those who don't believe. Don't build a foundation of life on sand. It will take it away with the tide. Love a little more, be unkind a lot less.

Welcome Mandy!!

So glad you found us. This is a caring group.

Sooo sorry to learn of your brother and your stroke. Do they know what caused your stroke??? What are they doing for you now to prevent the next one?

I have four children also, but mine are grown. The stroke very well could cause depression. Are you taking any anti-depressant ?? If not, please let your doctor know that you are suffering. They can prescribe a med that will help balance your brain chemistry and get you feeling mor like your old self again.

I wonder why your sister-in-law is allowing your brother to hide . . . I would think she would contact you to help support him emotionally . . . . or are you saying that she is looking for him also??? sad very sad sad

dearest mandyi know what you mean sbout "changing your life"mine changed when i was 31 6years ago ive been on anti depreeantes since i tried stopping them once "to be normal" and all it did was turn me into a very nasty hermit once i was back on them i was better meds can be good in certain instances i will be on them the rest of my life so if the doc thinks (or you) would be better with them i would give it another go i will never be like i was but im better with them also im sorry to hear about your brother i have lost several family members to cancer throughout my life
                          I have walked the road of recovery
                          for sometime now
                          I look behind and see progress
                          though slow and alone it was
                          I look foward and see no end
                          I am alone.......
                          then a hand touched each shoulder so tender
                          so I looked to both sides and I found friends
                          who dont walk behind nor ahead
                          but by my side
                          I am not alone.......
                          and through my endless journey
                          I hope to see them reach     
                          the end of thier road of recovery
                          I will always be here
                          but  NEVER ALONE
                          I walk with my friends

Just wanting to add my welcome. I have found a wonderful family here that gives me a shoulder to rest on when I am weary. I konw you will find the same thing.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.
